Erin's Adventures

Posted on July 29, 2011 at 4:29 AM

Kerri had her second round of boosters and did better with them.  She was more tired afterward, but felt the booster itself went more smoothly than on the first day.


Erin spent the day with our friends Sara and Jessica.  She went shopping at one of Monterrey's largest malls, which is quite large and is across the street from the hotel where the President of Mexico stays at when he visits Monterrey.  She was treated to many flavors of frozen yogurt while shopping at the mall, and took numerous pictures of the bunnies and other animals in the pet store.


Erin then got to spend the afternoon and evening visiting with Jessica.  They spent several hours in the warm sunshine playing UNO, trivial pursuit, and just talking and laughing.  They also managed to nearly finish the entire batch of chocolate chip cookies Sarah and Jessica had baked.  Erin and Mark then had a wonderful dinner or stuffed peppers and spagetti pie that Sara prepared.  We are sure that both Erin and Jessica will sleep well tonight.


We also met the mother of a young patient at Hospital San José (through our friends Sara and Jessica) with a rare condition, so rare that he is the only person in Mexico with his condition.  There are no specialists for his condition in Mexico, so he travels all the way to Dupont Childrens' Hospital in Delaware where he sees the same doctor that originally diagnosed Kerri with her RSD.  It is just another demonstration of what a small world we live in. 


We look forward to Kerri having the opportunity to visit with Jessica and spending time doing whatever they will feel like after Kerri is released from the hospital.  Thank you again Sara and Jessica for being such good friends.  Good night and God Bless.

wow, it really is just a small, ironic world that we live in, eh? if only the place in mexico and dupont would switch places so as to make all of our lives easier! Erin, being the kinda kid that u r, i can only bet that U + shopping at mall = CD's, eh? anyway, we (the shusters) look forward to your quick, happy, and safe return home SOON!

Hi Jarvis family :)

I had a great time with Erin yesterday! it was like having an honorary little sister for the day! Thanks for sharing her with me, Kerri!... even if she did beat me in UNO...

Kerri, Hang in there with the rest of your boosters, I know its draining and tough, but the outcome will be worth it. I can't wait to see you again!

Love you guys!
xoxo Jessica & Sara

Awesome! Another day of treatment accomplished and adventure stories for Erin as well! Wish we could enjoy some of that time there with you. We pray for this day to be even better than the last and for Kerri to improve and have less pain each day! We pray the whole family has an adventure that will provide awesome memories throughout your lives to bond you even closer with each other and your friends, and to help you see the closeness and love of the LORD even better! You are all so special to us! Have a blessed day!

I am very happy to hear that Kerri is still doing alright with the boosters and the recovery. Hearing about Erin's fun times in Mexico brought a smile to my face. We loved spending time with her last year. However; I think she must feel so much more secure and happy just being with all of you. Love you guys!!

Glad to hear Erin is getting out and enjoying Mexico and that the boosters are going well. Always in my prayers
